From the Test Kitchen

This recipe pays tribute to the familiar flavors of a backyard barbecue. We’re coating chicken thighs with a sweet and tangy barbecue sauce, then adding on another layer of sauce once they come out of the oven, for deliciously moist results. On the side, a creamy potato salad is livened up with seasonal green beans and turnip. (Chefs, you may receive a purple top or scarlet queen turnip.)
